Finding jar files when all I have is broken code

I have inherited some code which will probably compile if I can figure out which jar files to link in. How can it figure it out?

Case in point:

import javax.servlet.jsp.JspException;

results in a compile error since this package isn't in the classpath.

Try http://www.jarhoo.com
This usually gives good results and will return the jar file name when a class name is input
